Postponement of Warfare 2020 to 2021

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of Warfare 2020 to 20201 due to the impact of the ongoing Covid-19 regulations.  We have held on for as long as possible in the hope that the situation for events of this size would normalise, however we now need to make a decision in order to give everyone time to plan their activities in November.

We are moving on to making sure Warfare 2021 will be a success. Warfare 2021 will be on the weekend of November 27th and 28th.  We will have the same Ascot Racecourse venue as was planned for this year and we are committed to making the most of the venue that will combine all the good things we have had in the past along with all of the new things we had planned for this year.

Thank you for your support of Warfare 2020. If you have already been kind enough to send us a deposit or pay for a tournament ticket for 2020 we will roll over your deposit and ticket to 2021. If you feel unable to commit to joining us next year, we will naturally return your deposit or refund your ticket.

Thanks to everyone who has either helped with the planning for this year or who has provided encouragement over the last few months.  Looking forward to a massive Warfare in 2021.

Tournament and Trade organisers will be in contact personally but if you have any queries please mail warclub@wargamesreading.co.uk<mailto:warclub@wargamesreading.co.uk>

Please sign up for club updates

+++ Club Members +++
 
Hi All,
It has become increasingly apparent that posting on Facebook and the website is not enough to get everyone at the town halls and see announcements as a lot of our members don’t use Facebook. To this end we have setup a mailing list using a company called mailchimp. The basic version we have signed up for is free and includes settings to make it GDPR compliant.
 
In order for people to register they need to sign up using the below link. At which point we will check them against the membership list and if they are not there we will offer them to pay and join or we will boot them off the list.

We plan to use the list so that we can announce what’s happening with the club re opening, Warfare and town halls.

COVID-19 and the club

Dear All

Following the most recent government guidance regarding social gatherings and the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 the club will be closed until the end of March, this includes weekend events. At the end of the month the decision will be reviewed. If guidance changes before then we will review the decision earlier.

 At present we are planning for Warfare 2020 taking place in November to go ahead as planned.

 We will post further announcements on the club website and Facebook page, any questions please contact warclub@wargamesreading.co.uk. If you know of any club members who don’t have access to either of these sources please pass the message on.

 Kind Regards

 Chris Watling
